    Haven't we all felt like this at least once?

    Sorry if this is old news or has been posted before, but I just saw this today and have lost count of the number of times I have been tempted to reproduce this over the years.

    New, old stuff

    Hi folks Thought I'd finally post something worth posting. These tracks were recorded in 2008/9 by a friend of mine, Mick Gaitens. Mick and I had played together for years in cover and function bands but he had recently started to record his own stuff and we decided to do a couple of tracks...

    I'm a turncoat traitor...

    Yes folks, after years of allegiance to the Zildjian brand, I have just purchased my first s.., I mean s...., SABIAN metal, a 20" AA raw bell crash. I didn't really want to do it, but it was sooo cheap that I couldn't resist. It sounds brilliant too and goes really well with my 19" A custom...

    You know it makes sense!

    My wife did and she says it was a good thing, so it must be true... She's always right, and she said that I could tell you all that.

    Trying to encourage my daughter...

    My snare drums

    Thought I'd post a few pics of my snares. I don't have a big or expensive collection, but I think with these 4 drums have most of the bases covered. My current go to snare is the steel Black Panther, but the others get a regular work out too.
